Get the Scoop: Favorite Paint Colors {Part One}

Emily- Emily A Clark- Favorite Paint Colors_2

You may recall the bloggers' favorite paint colors series I hosted two summers ago. It actually doesn't surprise me that it continues to be one of the most popular series on the blog of all time. I mean, paint is one of the easiest and least expensive ways to transform a space in very little time. Yet, selecting just the right color for a space can be so daunting. If you've ever had paint color swatches taped to your walls for weeks and still … [Read more...]

Weathered Chippy Bench Makeover

It’s the final installment of this year’s Outdoor Extravaganza, paint projects! Finally, the weather cooperated this past week and I was able to put in some good hours outside. At the end of each Outdoor Extravaganza I can’t believe how much progress everyone has made! Sometimes all it takes is a little accountability to finally get projects crossed of the to-do list, wouldn’t you agree? Yesterday, I showed you what I did with the bench I salva … [Read more...]

You are my Sunshine Bench Makeover

Yellow Bench Makeover

Perhaps it was the dreadfully long winter or the result of looking at a bazillion cottage inspiration pics, but I knew I had to add yellow somewhere at our house. Not the washed out version either, rather something bright and cheery. Sounds a bit scary for someone who loves neutrals, right? But when I was looking at making over the rustic blue bench I discovered at my parents' farm last summer, I knew it was the perfect opportunity. It would be … [Read more...]

Our Entryway Design Plan

Paneling With Hooks in Entryway

I mentioned at the beginning of April that I ordered a new blue ombre rug for our entryway. It finally arrived, and I'm feeling relieved because the bold color is exactly what I wanted to wake up the space. Like many makeover projects, the rug is only the jumping off point. Sometimes new accessories are all you need to refresh a space, but in this case, our entryway design plan requires a whole lot more to create a welcoming first … [Read more...]

Showhome Tour {A Few Highlights}

Showhome Neutral Great Room

Although we planned on making our way to visit our new baby niece this weekend, freezing rain forced us to stay fairly close to home. I was itching to get out of the house for a bit, so my husband and I decided to check out a few showhomes we hadn't been through yet in our area. Although there are few homes I walk through that I absolutely fall in love with, I often find there are parts of homes or certain features that give me ideas for client … [Read more...]

Front Door Paint Colors and Adding Curb Appeal {Reader Question}

Reader Design Question- How do I add curb appeal?

It's Friday! Let's get to another reader question from Satori's Facebook page, shall we? Although our weather has dipped down again today (please, please let this be the end!), it's time to start talking about freshening our exteriors with outdoor paint and adding more curb appeal. I received photos of two different houses with two very different looks asking many of the same design questions. Today I'm starting with Nicole's two-story suburban h … [Read more...]
